Ezekiel 16:15-22 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
15 " 'But you trusted in your beauty and used your fame to become a prostitute. You lavished your favors on anyone who passed by1 and your beauty became his.a2 16 You took some of your garments to make gaudy high places,3 where you carried on your prostitution.4 Such things should not happen, nor should they ever occur. 17 You also took the fine jewelry I gave you, the jewelry made of my gold and silver, and you made for yourself male idols and engaged in prostitution with them.5 18 And you took your embroidered clothes to put on them, and you offered my oil and incense6 before them. 19 Also the food I provided for you--the fine flour, olive oil and honey I gave you to eat--you offered as fragrant incense before them. That is what happened, declares the Sovereign LORD.7 20 " 'And you took your sons and daughters8 whom you bore to me9 and sacrificed them as food to the idols. Was your prostitution not enough?10 21 You slaughtered my children and sacrificed themb to the idols.11 22 In all your detestable practices and your prostitution you did not remember the days of your youth,12 when you were naked and bare,13 kicking about in your blood.14
